Ontario Ice Fishing--The Family Fun, Guys Getaway, Artistic Side

The Richard Johnson Gallery in Toronto is featuring an ice hut photo exhibition. This was covered in the globe and mail with the headline,

Out on the ice, no two huts are the same a story by Gary Michael Dault..."The huts, Johnson points out, are "sled-based," each still resting on the sled on which it was dragged out by snowmobile onto the ice". Globe article continues.

This blog author and amateur photographer prefers going out on the ice and checking out the variety of ice huts or, a search for the natural setting highlighting the solitary fishing hut in a more illuminated setting. (Photo taken by r.taylor on Lake Kashagawigamog in Haliburton). This is not just a guys sport. This is an outdoor sport for the entire family, however should not be considered a day long activity. Groups of guys will look at it differently as an annual outdoor right of the great Canadian outdoors. Ice fishing opportunities for families and guys can be found on the Ontario Travel North of Toronto website by going to ICE FISHING GETAWAYS
